Analyst Opinion

The IT Outsourcing market has been rapidly growing worldwide in recent years, driven by a variety of factors such as cost reduction, access to skilled labor, and increased efficiency.

Customer preferences:
Many companies are choosing to outsource their IT services to countries with a lower cost of living and lower labor costs. This allows them to save money while still receiving high-quality services. Additionally, companies are increasingly seeking out IT outsourcing providers that offer specialized services, such as cybersecurity or cloud computing.

Trends in the market:
In India, the IT outsourcing market has been growing steadily due to the country's large pool of skilled IT professionals and lower labor costs. However, there has been a recent trend towards more onshoring as companies seek to reduce the risks associated with outsourcing to a foreign country. In China, the IT outsourcing market is also growing rapidly, driven by the country's large population and increasing technological capabilities. However, there are concerns about intellectual property theft and data security in the country.

Local special circumstances:
In Latin America, the IT outsourcing market is growing due to the region's proximity to the United States and the availability of skilled labor. However, there are challenges such as language barriers and political instability in some countries. In Eastern Europe, the IT outsourcing market is also growing rapidly due to the region's highly skilled IT professionals and lower labor costs. However, there are concerns about data security and political instability in some countries.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growth of the IT outsourcing market is largely driven by macroeconomic factors such as globalization, technological advancements, and the increasing demand for specialized IT services. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend towards remote work and increased the demand for IT outsourcing services. However, there are also risks associated with outsourcing, such as data security and intellectual property theft, which companies must carefully consider before making a decision.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2G, B2B, and B2C enterprises. Figures are based on enterprises' technology spending on products, consulting, and outsourcing services.

Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a combined top-down and bottom-up approach, building on a specific rationale for each market segment. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of key players in the industry, Statista's primary research and surveys, and IT associations. In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, internet users, and telecommunication. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the exponential trend smoothing method is used based on the market data characteristics. The main drivers are the GDP and its sector composition, internet penetration, the level of digitization, and the attitude toward IT security.

Additional notes:

The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war is considered at a country-specific level.
